Description of problem:
Fedora 9, pure pppoe(no dsl device) login session.
upon entering GNOME, NetworkManager will prompt up to request password for pppoe login.
If input the password immediately, the Networkmanager works fine.
If the password input is delayed, the pppoe login will not work(seems the input is just ignored), and
at this situation, if mouse click the GNOME applet on the system tray to try to login again,
after the password input, the NetworkManager will crash.
After restarting NetworkManager, it is ok to login if no password input delay
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
everytime if repeat the steps below
for pure pppoe connections(no dsl devices),
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot the machine into GNOME, the NetworkManager will prompt to ask pppoe password
2.ignore the password input request for 2 minutes, and then input the password, click OK, the NetworkManager will ignore this input. the pppoe connection is not logged in.
3.mouse click the GNOME applet on the tray, to login pppoe again, after input the password, the NetworkManager will crash
NetworkManager should not crash
the attachment is the crash log
Is this still an issue with latest Fedora 9 NM updates? I believe the latest version has "svn4326" in the RPM name.

I have updated my system to Fedora 10, and Fedora 10 has not this issue any longer.
Ok, thanks for the report!
